Ten Thousand Villages Photo Contest


I am a bit of an amature photographer so I am always on the lookout for photo contests to enter.  It is a fun way to become inspired to try new things with yor camera and a great way for your work to be enjoyed by others.  Provided below is information about a photo contest being held by Ten Thousand Villages right here in Raleigh.  The photo subject is “use of fair trade items in your home”.  Entries are due by May 6th (see details below).  Good Luck!
